Product Description

Product Description

Even the best cut bacon can curl, making it difficult to cook evenly. The cast iron bacon press flattens the bacon, keeping it's shape for even cooking and the wooden handle stays cool while the press is in use. To speed up the process, pre-heat the press.

Amazon.com

Bacon curls while frying, making it difficult to cook evenly. Long ago, cooks found a simple solution to this problem: hold bacon to its proper shape by flattening it with a heavy, cast-iron press. Norpro's press hews to that tradition. It's made of traditional cast iron and has a wooden handle that stays cool while the press is in use. For speeding up the bacon-frying process, the press can be preheated--also preheat it when you're flattening hamburgers, grilled sandwiches, or quesadillas. Season the press by coating it with oil and heating it for 20 minutes; after cleaning it in soapy water, it should also be lightly coated with vegetable oil to prevent rust. --Fred Brack

Customer Reviews

This is a product I would recommend to anyone who cooks.

The design does not prove a difficulty in cleaning normal food particles off, just in my case with the rust.

A bacon press helps tremendously when fighting curling bacon. This one has a design on the bottom, which is attractive, but food particles get caught in it and make it impossible to clean. I have used mine for several years and no amount of scrubbing, even with wire pads, will get food particles from the cracks. A plain bottom would be more functional and healthier.

Everytime we would cook a big weekend breakfast, I would remember the grill presses from when I was a kid and mutter to myself that I needed one. Saw it here at Amazon and decided to give it a try.

Pros - It works just like I remembered. It holds the bacon down and keeps it flat while cooking. This produces a very consistently cooked piece of meat, which is what I was looking for. We prefer our bacon crispy, but not overcooked, and this does a fine job. If you like crisp bacon then this press is what you are looking for.

Cons - It is iron, you have to remember to season it. That's not necessarily a con if you are familiar with cooking with iron cookware, but my darling wife is not and she put it in the dishwasher - repeatedly. Now the darn thing has rust on it that is proving difficult to deal with. That is where the cute little design of a pig on its face comes into being a con. It's difficult to clean around all of its ridges. The design does not prove a difficulty in cleaning normal food particles off, just in my case with the rust.

The addition of some kind of drip pan would be nice as well, but I live without it well enough. When I am done cooking I just lift it off the pan for a moment and let most of the grease run off. Then, a couple of paper towels folding up as a blotter do well to keep the mess down while we eat and the press waits for a hand cleaning.

Someone didn't think things through on this. There's a "Bacon Press" design on the bottom surface that has all sorts of irregular nooks and crannies, it's a pain in the behind to clean. The round bacon press by Norpro is much better (though a bit big for some situations) because the bottom surface is just ridged to give that striped "grilled look".

I don't know why that design is not on the top surface instead of on the bottom. Just plain dumb.

I have owned this very same bacon press for several years and it works fine. There are people complaining that the press is too short for the length of the strips of bacon. CUT THE STRIPS IN HALF! You still get a nice size strip of bacon about the same size that you would get in most any Waffel/pancake joint. Too hard to clean you say? How about wrapping everything below the handle with a piece of aluminum foil. This is not rocket science here! Jeezus people.

Had I read this more carefully, I would have not purchased. About 1/2 the size of a normal strip of bacon. Product works great for preventing curling, however. Would have preferred now to get the other bacon press that is the full size of a strip of bacon (or closer to) for better coverage.

It is only 6 1/2" in length. I thought it would be longer since bacon is cut approx. 10" so you have to keep moving it around. The weight is good.

What could be more "home spun" kitchen fun than the use of a simple, light, wooden handled bacon press. The side view of a pig cast into the press only adds to the down home appeal. Leave your heavy "grilled cheese" press on the sideline here, as this is the one to use for consistent flat, crisp, and enjoyable bacon!

This cast iron press should not be called a Bacon press because the uses are endless, from bacon to sausage, to griled cheese sandwiches and much more. The quality is old world and the handle is real wood. I love it.
